After running a successful business for 15 years the opportunity arose to for me to follow my lifetime love of gardening. I enrolled in the RHS horticutural course at Writtle College eager for a new direction. This led to planting and maintenance jobs working with local landscapers. Design was a very natural progression. I went on to graduate from Writtle College acheiving my Garden Design diploma.
Since then I have built up my business through client recommendations.
I feel very lucky being able to garden for a living and look forward to helping you with yours.

'We have employed The PlantSmith to design our garden at two successive properties and have been delighted with the results on both occasions. We were presented with a detailed design which incorporated our own ideas as well as Wendy's own thoughts on the various plant selections to suit the garden conditions. The quality of the plants supplied were excellent and we were impressed by the attention given to ensuring was not wasted on the planting. On completeion we wre presented with a detailed colour booklet identifying each of the plants introduced into our garden and how to maintain and care for the plants throughout the seasons and it is reassuring to know that Wendy's expert opinion is just a phone call away if we needed a little extra peice of advice. We would have no hesitation in recommending The PlantSmith for your garden designs' Weeley
